I have access to these until 24/12 so if anyone wants me to check for anything/one on them please let me know.

Interestingly they seem to include examination papers (Bastardy bonds?)for Wilmington as well.

Wilmington baptisms, marriages & burials 1538-1900

Heathfield 1581-1906

Please leave the names of the people you want to search for, and dates if possible.

If this is the Wilmington in Kent then it may be worth a look for Maria BUTLER b1870 and brother Charles BUTLER b 1867. Both were described as illegitimate when in a school on 1881 census. So they could be in the Bastardy records somewhere.

She gives her birth place as Woolwich but I think I have exhausted those records.
Thanking you

Aw Gloria

It is Wilmington, Sussex. Sorry didn't realise there was one in Kent, too. I have amended the title to save further confusion, sorry :o

Hi,

I have my 3x great grandmother I'm trying to trace.

Phoebe Martin (daughter of James Martin and Ellen Walters) born about 1817. I have either Hastings or Heathfield as place of birth.

Phoebe married Benjamin Mepham 16th Oct 1835 in Heathfield. Nothing known about Benjamin.

Phoebe had a son ,Benjamin, baptised 27th Dec 1835 in Heathfield.

Now Phoebe and baby Benjamin came to Australia before 1844 as she remarried here then. Not sure if her husband came as well, but can't find his death here.

Could you possibly see if Benjamin senior died before 1844 and if there any other children.
I'm sorry, I don't have anything on this family before this time.

Thank you,
Libby.

Dad's Army was filmed in Suffolk. The fictitious town was (I think) Warmington on Sea.

Please keep that offer open Joan,

I am interested in any Alchin/Allchin/Alchorne/Alcherne names from Sussex.

Mine came from the Rotherfield/Mayfield area in the 15th Century.

I have taken a lot of information from The Weald Website.

Thanks Joan...

I have a little bit more info.

Phoebe Martin married Benjamin Mepham 1835 Heathfield.

Baby Benjamin born Heathfield.

Phoebe's husband is nowhere to be found. Could you check burials between marriage and 1837 (or 1839 if it goes that far).

Also I'm looking for Phoebe and her family. Phoebe born about 1817. Her parents were James Martin and Ellen (or Ellenor) Walters. I have nothing more on them, or any siblings for Phoebe.

Only if you have time.

Thank you.
Libby.

I am interested to know if there are any HEAD baptism. There should be at least Ann Head c 1831 daughter of Richard Head and Mary Harbour. Maybe Richard Head c1798 is there although I have him born Penshurst I have not located a baptism for him yet.

Thank you

The film I have access to only goes up to 1812. I may be able to order the film that includes marriages & baptisms from 1812, so will look into it & let you know if I can.

Hi Ken,
Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately Joan doesn't visit our forum that often but if you want to make contact with her you will find her as one of the admin team on Genealogists Forum (http://www.genealogistsforum.co.uk/forum/).

However, do have a look through our Surname Directory (http://familytreeforum.com/wiki/index.php/Surname_Directory) and the GEDCOM database (http://www.familytreeforum.com/ged_index.php) to see if anyone else is researching these names, and if you have any specific questions then feel free to post a query of your own and we will see what we can do to help.

Am interested in tracing a family of OSMON - but variously spelt OSMAN, OSMER, HOSMAN, HOSMER, OSBORNE etc. In particular, a Lilly OSMON who was a MALE in spite of the name, born around 1822 - possible parents Edward & Elizabeth. Also children of Lilly & Ruth WOOD from 1843 - 1869. Any help would be appreciated. Barry Woods,

Many thanks for such a rapid response!!! I did have her father as William but didnt have the proof I needed. Thanks again.
Does someone have access to the Heathfield registers and willing to do look-ups??

Hi Barry
I think the Heathfield baptisms & marriages are on familysearch, although I don't know what dates are covered. This search should bring up 20 records.

https://familysearch.org/search/records/index#count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Ahosmer~%20%2Bbatch_number%3AI04 778-7 (https://familysearch.org/search/records/index#count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Ahosmer%7E%20%2Bbatch_number%3AI 04778-7)

& this one 11 results
https://familysearch.org/search/records/index#count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Aosman~%20%2Bbatch_number%3AI047 78-7 (https://familysearch.org/search/records/index#count=20&query=%2Bsurname%3Aosman%7E%20%2Bbatch_number%3AI0 4778-7)

If the links don't work put I04778-7 in the batch number search box using the names Osman & Hosmer.
Burials for Heathfield are in the NBI up to 1899.
